A man killed by police in Bangladesh after allegedly hijacking a plane was found to be carrying a toy gun.
The 25-year-old man was shot dead by police after an emergency landing in the city of Chittagong.
It is understood the man took a crew member hostage and threatened to storm the cockpit. It was feared he was carrying explosives on the Dubai-bound flight, and some passengers said they saw him with a firearm.
But Chittagong police commissioner Kusum Dewan said in a statement on Monday that the suspect was carrying a toy pistol and had no explosives on him.
Investigators are now trying to establish how the man managed to get a toy gun through airport security and onto the plane.
